Node.js is an event-driven environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web apps that require live communication between a web server and the online users and can considerably accelerate the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides tiny amounts of information. For instance, if a new user fills in a subscription form, the moment any information is entered in one of the fields, it’s delivered to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one large hunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, things change when the website grows bigger and there’re plenty of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, real-time web browser-based games or online chat applications, for example, and a lot of corporations, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Hosting
As Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account and to use it for any web-based application that you’ve got, irrespective of which hosting plan you’ve chosen upon signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all web hosting accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you want to add – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes afterwards, you can include the path to the application, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your web hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to gain access to the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to terminate it in case you don’t need it any longer. You’ll also gain access to the output code with only a single click of the mouse.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated hosting plans support Node.js, so if you wish to host any real-time application on our leading-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to use the power that Node.js can offer you with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you wish to use Node.js for different websites, you’ll be able to pick the amount of active instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate GUI, you’ll have to enter the path to the .js file for each instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will choose a random port number to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also permit you to view the output of any of your applications or to discontinue/restart each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed VPS web hosting plans that we are offering and you can activate it without any complications, even if you’ve never used it before, since Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click interface, which will permit you to do anything effortlessly. The platform can be used for as many Internet apps as you need, so you can get the most out of your sites by mixing the power of our virtual machines with the performance provided by Node.js. You have to indicate the path to the .js file within your account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP or your virtual machine’s shared one and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will generate randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over all instances and, with just one mouse click, you will be able to start, to discontinue or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to get one of our dedicated web hosting plans for your script-powered software apps and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no additional charge, since this event-driven platform is available in our custom-developed Control Panel tool. As our servers are unbelievably powerful, you’ll get superb performance even if you use numerous Node.js instances at the same time. The setup takes a couple of clicks and Hepsia’s user interface will make it rather easy for you to set up a new instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Indicating the .js file path and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and as soon as our system has set a port to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be rebooted or canceled independently and you’ll be granted with access to an in-depth output log for each app that uses the Node.js platform.
